NORTH CAEOLINIAN- Wm. II. Raync, Editor and Proprietor. PAYETTEVILLE, X. C. AUGUST 10 1050. G-I.-O-R-I-O-IJ-S ! I ! D. S. REID GOV. OF N. CAROLINA! The election on the 1st of August, hat result ed in the choice of that sterling democrat, David S. Reid, for Governor ot North Carolina, for two years from the 1st January next, by a maj.of probably 4000!!!!! While we do not claim this as strictly a Party triumph, yet it is the result of a combination of causes which we doubt not will break the chains with which whiggery has kept the State in thral dom for the last fifteen years. It is the severest blow to whiggery in the United States, which it has received since the days of Andrew Jackson. Hurra for Reid ! ! ! We tender our thanks to those friends who forwarded returns of the election. Glorious friends and glorious returns ! MR ASHE'S SPEECH. We publish on the first page of to-day's paper, Mr Ashe's speech on the question of admitting the delegate from New Mexico to a seat in the House. This question involved that of the boundary of Texas ; and Mr Ashe's speech will be found to be an able exposition of the right of Texas to the territory she claims. The question of boundary between Texas and New Mexico, is one of great importance, which may lead to very serious results; and hence this speech is of im portance to every man who wishes to understand the merits of the question upon which possibly he may be called to take up arms. For if the general government interferes with the rights of Texas there.wiil be civil war; and if it comes to that, the southern States will be bound to take the part of Texas, because it will be a war between pre-slavery and abolitionism. CAROLINA FLOUR. The Greensborough Patriot says that from information from the wheat growing counties of North Carolina, it is certain there will not be much over half the usual quantity of flour made, and that of a very inferior quality owing to the rust. Corn in that region has also suffered greatly from drought ; but is looking up. We learn at Mr McNeill's flour mill, that but two and a half bushels of wheat have been re ceived there this season, whereas there ought to have been a thousand or more. THE " BANNER" COUNTY. Rutherford county has so completely turned the burthen of defeat upon the whig candidate, that she may be called the " Banner " county in more than one sense. She has given Cl. Reid his greatest gain, and she glories in being the seat of publication of the "Mountain Banner," the whig paper that supported Col. Reid's elec tion, and which has been repudiated almost, by the whig presses at Raleigh. Nine cheers for Rutherford ! 3- The Raleigh Register makes a heavy com plaint against the late whig Secretary of the Navy, Win. B. Preston, and rasps him very gen teely for giving the Raleigh Standard a long ad vertisement from the Navy Department, instead of giving it to the whig papers. We were surprised urself to see the adver tisement in the Standard; and we think it was probably a mistake that was very luckily made for the Standard. The Register thinks Mr Wm. B. Preston not much any how, and tnuoh less for being a Vir ginian. . ARRIVAL OF THE CAMBRIA. Telegraphed for Charleston Courier. Baltimore. Aug. 6. The British steamer Camhria ar rived at Halifax ou Tuesday. The cotton market had declined nearly an eighth of a penny, since the sailing of the previous steamer. The sales of the week amonnt to 30.000 bales. Corn has advanced Is. 6. to 3s. Flour has advanced 6d. The Portuguese government has declined to accede to the demands of the American Minister, who has iemand ed his passports. Acf ual hostilities have commenced be tween Denmark and the Dutch ies. BLADEN. The democrats of the State, and particularly ot Bladen, are under obligations to Mr. McDowell, the. member elect to the commons in that county ; for nothing but his exertions, and sacrifice of time and inclination, has prevent ed Bladen from being represented by a whig. Mr McDowell was ereatlv averse to beiner a : 0- . C candidate, and nothing but his patriotism in duced him, when no other democrat could be induced even hy that, to become a candidate. Let these facts he set down to the honor and credit of Mr McDowell. THE BENTON & FOOTE FRACAS. The committee appointed to inquire into the pistol fracas, between Messrs Benton and Foote, in the senate some months ago, have at last re ported. We have not seen the report, but the Charleston Mercury says "It makes Mr Benton in the first degree responsible for the fracas ac quits Mr Foote of all aggressive movements and intentions condemns the wearing f deadly weapons, in the senate recommends that noth ing: further be done in th nramieoe nnrt hnnea . ' I K that the like will not happen again." The editor of the Standard is requested to raise a subscription bnd purchase an empty hard cider barrel, and roU it down to the editor of the Register, as the consideration in the "deed of gift" of the " Mountain Banner" and the 1200 whigs of Rutherford ! GLORIFICATION ! ye are requested to state that a meeting of the democrats of Cumberland county will be held at th Town -Hjall TO-NIGHT, at candle light, to make, arrangements for a suitable glorification over the glorious result of the . election of the ever-to-be-remembered 1st of August, 1S50. Aug. 10, 1S50. i SNAPPISH. The editors of the Observer and Raleigh Register, are so full of chagrin at the defeat of their candidate for Governor, that they can scarcely give utterance to their rage. One article in the Observer reminds us very much of a dead turtle's head, with its eyes closed, snapping at every thing that vexes it. He is going to indict 100 of the voters at Averasboro, because they were, as he alledges, not residents of this county. How does he know they were not residents ? He only surmises he knows nothine about it. Yet he takes the liberty to impugn the motives of the judges of the elections to charge them with corruption, upon a surmise ! The editor aforesaid is very smart (sometimes) at ridiculing people who "go it blind." We should not be surprised if (while he is in the dead snapping turtle mood) he should try to in dict all the whigs of Rutherford county, and bite off the Mountain Banner man's head. We believe there are some snakes who, when they get angry, bite themselves. The Observer editor has come pretty near committing the same folly: he complains very bitterly that a man who has been publicly whipped in this town, at the whipping post, " was allowed to vote the loco foco ticket." Who " allowed " it ? The judges. They knew their duty better than the editor of the Observer appears to know it. They had no right to pre vent the man from voting. According to law, his vote was as good as the Observer editor's ; and since it galls him so badly, we are happy to tell him that man's vote offset Mr Hale's We are inclined to believe that if the man had voted the whig ticket we should not have heard of it. Why then would he rake up the man's misfortunes merely for a little spite and malice But the way he bit himself at this snap was, the man offered his vote at Rock fish precinct, where a whig Magistrate, C. P. Mallet, held the poll, and the said Magistrate, icithout law. refused to let him vote. Won't the Observer editor indict Mr Mallett for keeping a legal (Reid) vote out of the box ? While on the subject of small matters, we un derstand that some whigs carried a crazy man to the polls to vote for Manly. The editor should indict the judges for not letting him vote ! He seems so keen in hunting up "work for the Superior Court," we call his attention to these things. The editor publishes, upon mere hearsay, that part of the "100" increased vote at Averas- borough, were workmen on the Cape Fear river; but it so happens that Mr McCullough, of the firm of McCullough and Hunter, contrac tors (a gentleman ot known veracity) was in our office to-day (Wednesday) and authorized us to say that no man in his employ voted at Averas- borough on the day of election. Mr Watt confirms the statement of Mr McCul lough. DISGRACED DISGRACEFUL. The following extraordinary paragraph ap pears in the Raleigh Register of Aug. 7th : 44 There can be but little, or no doubt, therefore, that David S. Reid is elected Governor of North Carolina How does that sound to whig ears to the ears of those whigs who have fixed upon our good old State, for the first time since the ajnend tnent of the Constitution, the burning re proach of having a locofoco Governor, and the indelible disgrace of having chosen such a chiet Executive (Jlcerr, Let any man possessing the feelings of a gen tleman read that paragraph, and look at it in the broadness and deepness of its meaning. Mr Gales, j'oung and inexperienced, has there com mitted an outrage against a State a gentleman a party and a people. If the election of Mr Reid is a " disgrace," the people have disgraced themselves and their State; for they elected him ; and to say nothing of the anti-republicani?m of the above paragraph, it looks very presumptuous, to say the least, for a young man just entering the business world, who has learned to use a pen, without possessing the judgment to guide it, to publicly declare that the people of a State have disgraced themselves by an act of sovereignty. To be sure, people at home here, who know the editor, will take it for Just what it is worth, but people abroad may think, either that the peo ple of North Carolina deserve all the contempt which many are inclined to heap upon them, or else the editor of the State capitol whig journal has slandered them most wilfully. Further comment on such a disgraceful para graph is unnecessary. TEXAS. The Governor of Texas, P. II. Bell, in his special message to the Legislature of Texas (to assemble in called session on 12th inst.) in relation to the disputed territory, says that the State of Texas does not recognize any authority in the government longer to continue civil or military government in Santa Fe, or in any other portion of Texas. He says that " Texas knows her rights, and will maintain them with all the means which God and nature have given her.'" "Too just to invade the rights of others, she is too proud to surrender her own." The citizens of Galveston held a meeting on the 20th of July, at which they " resolved " that their title to their territory, as set forth in the act of 1830, is perfect and indisputable, and that the authorities of the State ought to use the re sources and the force of the State to maintain it; and that means ought to be taken to expel the civil and military government of Santa Fe, erect ed by U. S. authorities. A FUNNY FELLOW. On Tuesday morning last, after the whigs had given up the election of Manly, the Salisbury Watchman came lumbering down from the post office, with the following words in flaming capi tals : "Glorious news! The whigs triumphant ! Manly vote increased P -A little below these great capitals, the editor expressed " the confident hope " that Gov. Man ly had " carried the whole State most glorious ly! !!" Alas, for human hopes ! 03- Mr Bates declines being Secretary of war.

On Friday morning we received in the Union, the message of President Fillmore to Congress, in relation to the important question of boun dary between Texas and New Mexico. The President says that there is no authority by which he can decide what is the true boundary between Texas and New Mexico, but that the disputed territory comes within the boundaries of the U. States, as defined in the treaty with Mexico after the war, which treaty binds the U. S. to protect the people within those boundaries; hence it will be his duty, should Texas, or any other State or body of persons, commit an armed interference with those people, to protect them. Therefore he earnestly and with great empha sis, urges on congress, the necessity of at once defining the boundary between Texas and New Mexico. It is very evident that action on the part of Congress, and equitable action alone can prevent a civil war. Once commenced the American Union will be among the things that were. No action was taken on the message, save or dering it to be printed. fj3 Mr Hall, of Boston, died of poison, week before last, in consequence of an apothecary, Mr Terrance Wakefield, sending corrosive sublimate instead of the calomel prescribed by the physi cian. The Albany argus notices the event thus: Died of a Technicality. This should be the verdict of the coroner's jury on the body of the unfortunate man in Boston who sent to the Apothecary his physician's written prescription for a dose of calomel, but received a dose of cor rosive sublimate, which killed him. The doctor wrote " Sub muriate Hydrar," instead of" calo mel," and the apothecary read it " Muriate Hy drar fost," or "corrosive sublimate." So the patient died. Mr Wakefield was subsequently arrested, and held to bail in the sum f $5000 for manslaught er. We don't know whether Mr Wakefield did it carelessly or designedly, or ignorautly ; but in either case the physician deserves part of the censure for not writing in plain English, instead of a dead language. Then there could have been no excuse. But if the statement of the Argus be correct, Dr Coale ought to suffer one-fourth the penalty. THE EFFECTS OF CAUSES. The Baltimore correspondent of the Washing ton Union says : The Philadelphia papers contain some account of quite a row between the Balti- moreans anil the negro waiters at cape May, in which the latter were totally routed. It appears that one of the negroes, during a ball at the Atlantic Hotel, insult ed oue of the Baltimoreans, and when the ball was over, he knocked the negro down. The servants to the number of one hundred rushed to his rescue, and the Baltimo reans came to the assistance of their towns man There was auite a number of bruised heads and faces on both sides, but the negroes were finally routed and order restored. The announcement made this morning that the southerners had all been compelled to leave the island is therefore altogether fabulous. About one hundred Baltimoreans went down in the boat to-day. , - - 09 Commodore Jacob Jones died in Philadel phia, last Saturday.
